About New South Wales Golf Club
The New South Wales Golf Club was founded on March 29, 1926, in La Perouse, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
With undulating fairways, small greens and located near the Pacific Ocean, this sleeping giant is as beautiful as it is difficult. The golf links at La Perouse has played an important part in the history of golf, not only in Australia, but in the world.
The course was designed by Alister MacKenzie, the same architect who designed Augusta National Golf Club in 1933.
The course is flanked by water; Botany Bay, Cruwee Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most spectacular courses and one of the most difficult in Autralia.
New South Wales currently ranks as the 9th greatest golf course outside the United States, and is the 1st ranked golf course outside the United States and the United Kingdom.
New South Wales rates in the Top 5 courses in Australia and in the world Top 50. And, whilst it has only hosted a few tournaments in its time, the professionals should consider themselves lucky that they aren't asked to play it more often.
The course record for amateurs was set by Scott Arnold in 2009, he shot a 64. The course record for professionals was set by Elliot Boult in 1994, he shot a 64.
'It’s one of the great golf courses I’ve seen, really a fun golf course. You could have some real times out here.' – Arnold Palmer
'At Sydney , I made an entirely new course for the New South Wales Golf Club at a place called La Perouse. This is a sand duned peninsula which overlooks Botany Bay and presents, I think, more spectacular views than any other place I know with the possible exception of the new Cypress Point golf course I am doing on the Del Monte peninsula in California.' – Dr. Alister MacKenzie.
Hole 2 gives a flavour for the stern test of golf ahead.
The rugged terrain combined with fast greens
Hole 5 has a blind drive over a hill. If the wind is from the North, a good drive and a wedge will suffice but if it from the South a three woods will be needed to reach the green.
The world famous hole 6 is a par with its back tee located on a rocky outcrop overlooking the wreck of the SS Minmi. At certain times you need to aim your tee-shot directly into the Pacific Ocean for it to reach the green.This course definitely punishes poor or off-line shots more than most other courses. The drive on the long uphill par 4 hole 7 also requires accuracy as the vegetation will capture any off-line shot and this green is one of the more treacherous on the course.
The last six holes at NSW Golf Club are beautiful, beginning with four par 4 each of different character. Hole 13 and hole 14 are classic cliff-top doglegs and the drive through the 'saddle' on the up-hill Hole 15, along with the blind second shot, will certainly test your nerves - as will the difficult dogleg Hole 16. The exposed Hole 17 is another fantastic par 3 where you miss the green at your peril. The closing par 5 requires three accurate shots
You will spend a memorable round of golf in spite of this battle with the elements.
